First of all it is really well written. The message the authors are advocating flows smoothly. I don't find anything that contradicts its logic. I was expecting more rather opinion-based moralizing after reading all the 1-star reviews. However, I haven't found that in the book. I enjoyed reading it, although the authors' conclusions are not funny at all.
I don't run surveys or any other scientific research on the book's subject matter and I can't prove that the statistics are right or not. I can only say that the outcome of the surveys presented in the book confirms my observation. I mean I know a lot of women who can't find a normal guy (I don't mean "the right guy"). In most cases they meet the kind of guys who can't be bothered about maintaining a relationship.
I even know a guy who decided to leave his girlfriend for computer games (I don't know what other stuff he was enjoying in his room). At a point he had to borrow some money to live off and was unable to give it back. His lender organized a job for him. The guy paid the debt after two weeks, quit the job and immersed himself in the virtual world again.
I believe the problems depicted in "The Demise of Guys" are global. I have never been to the US, but I think the book is quite relevant in other countries I have been living in: Poland, the UK and lately Australia.
This book is important for me as a relatively new father. The content wasn't surprising for me at all. It just reminds me about the direction I'm trying to give to my son's upbringing.
